AFGHAN REFUGEE CRISIS RESPONSE
We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of individuals, groups and organisations in the response to the Afghan appeal. Due to this we have paused accepting any more donations.
If you would like to make a financial contribution to support the work that we do to support refugees and migrants that are marginalised in the county, please use the donate button at the top of the page, please consider a regular monthly donation as this is vital at this time to us being able to continue the work that we do in the county.
We would like to thank the following organisations for their support, we could not have responded to this crisis without the generous support we have received from:
-Shrewsbury Town Council
-The ongoing and continued support from Storage King
-All the individuals and town councils who acted as donation drop off points
-The countless people who have volunteered their time to sort through donations
If you would like to keep up to date with the latest news, announcements, and updates on how to help us in supporting Shropshire's refugee community please consider joining our closed FaceBook group.
Thank you for caring so much and reaching out with your generous spirit.
